Prolaxa is an herbal alternative formulation which aids in the relief of simple constipation. This blend of mild cathartics (agents which promote intestinal elimination), in combination with improved dietary habits, will help your body regain control of the elimination process.
Cascara sagrada is traditionally used in herbal medicine as a stimulant laxative for short term relief of occasional constipation; used in herbal medicine to promote bowel movement by direct action on the large intestine.
Adults (19 and over): Take 2–6 capsules in a single dose at bedtime two to three times per week; if results are not observed, the frequency may be increased up to once daily; or as directed by your health-care practitioner. Allow at least 6–12 hours for laxative effect to occur. If you are taking other medications or health products, take this product a few hours before or after them.
Duration of use: Consult a health-care practitioner for use beyond 7 days.
Cautions and warnings:
Cautions and warnings: Consult a health-care practitioner if symptoms persist or worsen. Consult a health-care practitioner prior to use if you are taking thiazide diuretics, corticosteroids, licorice root, or other medications or health products which may aggravate electrolyte imbalance; if you are taking cardiac medications such as cardiac glycosides or antiarrhythmic medications; if you have faecal impaction or symptoms such as abdominal pain, nausea, vomiting, or fever; if you have a liver disorder, stomach ulcers, or inflammation. Reduce dose or discontinue use if you experience abdominal pain, cramps, spasms, and/or diarrhea.
Contraindications: Do not use if you are pregnant or breast-feeding; if you have abnormal constrictions of the gastrointestinal tract, potential or existing intestinal blockage, atonic bowel, appendicitis, inflammatory colon disease such as Crohn’s disease or ulcerative colitis, abdominal pain of unknown origin, undiagnosed rectal bleeding, severe dehydration with depleted water or electrolytes, or diarrhea; if you have hypokalemia, high blood pressure, or a kidney or cardiovascular disorder; if you have arthritis. Contraindicated in those with a weak stomach and those who do not have constipation.
Known adverse reactions: Hypersensitivity has been known to occur; in which case, discontinue use. With chronic use or abuse, disturbances of electrolyte balance, especially potassium deficiency, albuminuria, and hematuria, may occur. Rectal bleeding or failure to have a bowel movement after the use of a laxative may indicate a serious condition. May cause cramp-like discomfort of the gastrointestinal tract, which may require a reduction of dosage. The astringent effect of rhubarb may exacerbate, rather than relieve symptoms of constipation.
